i must admit, it does make me feel a bit queasy, but that aside, it raises questions of ownership of the body as well.  it seems obvious to me that he owns his body and may do with it as he likes, but i'd be interested to hear what medical practitioners think about this.  i'd expect their opinions to be quite diverse.

on a purely technical point: i noticed he's using what looks like a LiPo battery.  safety issues aside (after all, he's a pioneer) it seems like a "wetwear" battery would really kick this stuff off.  i'm sure someone is working on this...
